A reader sends this brief analysis of why Islam is inherently racist.
Why Islam is a racist doctrine
George M. Fredrickson (1934-2008) was a professor of U.S. history at Stanford University from 1984 until 2002. His best known work is White Supremacy: a Comparative Study in American and South African History
According to Fredrickson, racism exists when “differences that might otherwise be considered ethnocultural are regarded as innate, indelible and unchangeable”
The Qur’an says:
- that Jews love to listen to lies (5:41);
- that Jews dispute and quarrel (2:247);
- that Jews hide the truth and mislead people (3:78);
- that Jews are hypocritical (2:14, 2:44);
- that Jews wish evil for people and try to mislead them (2:109);
- that Jews feel pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120);
- that Jews devour people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161);
- that Jews kill the prophets (2:61);
- that Jews are merciless and heartless (2:74);
- that Jews never keep their word (2:100);
- that Jews are unrestrained in committing sin (5:79);
- that Jews are cowardly (59:13-14);
- that Jews are miserly (4:53);
- that Jews were transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166).
The Qur’an is the main foundation of Islam.
Therefore Islam is a racist doctrine.
